The Ideology of Intelligence and I.Q. Magic in Education.
Hilliard, Asa G., III
Negro Educational Review, v38 n2-3 p136-45 Apr-Jul 1987
The utility of intelligence tests for teaching and learning is questionable. These tests and the construct of intelligence have little value in classifying, predicting, and diagnosing the mental competence of Black children. Research may reveal components of mental potential which are more testable. Standardized I.Q. tests should be abandoned. (VM)
